Understanding the inner voice
My inner critic was useful before, it was part of my survival kit. It wants to be heard in order to protect me from frustration, failure and negative emotions. Understanding that i am in a different situation now is vital and rationalizing its role is important. I need to talk to it, act like its a noisy upstairs neighbor help me to talk with it and explain why its service is not needed anymore. Instead,present the current situation and offer a new narrative for it to reproduce, a more useful one in this new chapter of my life.
• if you do it, you will fail = when you do it, amazing things will come to your way.
•its too late= you are exactly where it suppose to be. The missing chances play no role here, but the now and the future yes!
•ive tried and didn’t succeed = you are in a different position now. You fought for your chance of doing this, now enjoy the fruits of your work!
•you cannot do it= i can do it following the limits of my body and mind. The speed doesnt matter but the direction! You deserve to enjoy the results.
• Be more kind to yourself, to your hard work. You have been through a lot in order to survive, but there is more to living than staying alive. All the knowledge is right there for you to enjoy, you just need to be willing to break the cycle and feel uncomfortable for a little while to have a life of comfort!
